Don’t Make Me Pull Over!: An Informal History of the Family Road Trip by Richard Ratay

Posted by rivergrovelibrary on

If you took road trips with your family prior to 1980, this book is for you. Don’t Make Me Pull Over! An Informal History of the Family Road Trip by Richard Ratay will bring back a time on the road when almost anything was acceptable. Who doesn’t recall children piled into the back seat with pillows, blankets, games, and food? Anytime there was more than one child in the back, an argument was going to occur about who was on whose side. Cars were large and could accommodate six people comfortably. Of course there were three people in the front and three in the back. Seat belts? There were none. Well, yes, there were but no one really used a seat belt, did they? See what memories of your past come back to you when you read this book.
